Local listing management is an online marketing strategy that ensures all of your brick-and-mortar business locations are accurately listed on business directories like Google My Business, Facebook Places, Bing Places, Apple Maps, and more.

Having accurate data and business listings optimized for core keywords also impacts your business listing ranking on all of the major search engines, which are critical in helping consumers find your business location.

Your local business listing is at the foundation of your online presence. It provides potential customers with basic business data including address, phone number, business hours, and more. Successful local listing management solidifies such foundational data while finding opportunities for improved SEO performance – resulting in increases in brand visibility and in-store revenue.

Our approach to managed local business listings leverages a combination of proven tactics and tools to ensure your local data is accurate and your business locations are easily found by customers. Learn more about Location3’s strategic approach to local listing management below.

Data Integrity

Business listings management starts with a comprehensive audit of your business data. We will validate your data format and alignment, resolve any existing listings errors, double-check for proper analytics tagging, and verify business addresses and geo-coordinates.

Research & Strategy Development

One of the defining features of our local business listings service is a well-defined plan of action. Our plan is derived from extensive research into your competition as well as any keyword opportunities that can increase SEO performance.


Our proprietary LOCALACT software is the ideal tool to monitor, analyze, and optimize all of your local listings, while ensuring all of your local data is easily managed in a centralized platform.

L3Pin Geo-Coordinate Validation

When it comes to listings accuracy, it’s all in the details. We use a combination of proprietary technology and our in-house local listings experts to verify the exact geo-coordinates and addresses of each business location. This ensures your customers can easily find your business locations.

Direct Data Distribution

We leverage our direct partnerships with the Big Four – Google, Bing, Facebook, and Apple – to distribute your optimized data directly for processing. We then use our direct data distribution network to reach more than 100 countries across six continents. This extensive network ensures your listing data is accurate across all platforms and devices.
